I made it through Monday! Is it strange that I feel like that every Monday night? It’s always such a long day. It looks something like this:
- 8:30AM : Arrive at work
- 6:00PM: Leave work
- 6:30 – 7:30 : Gym time
- 7:30 – 8:30 : Grocery shop
- 8:30 – 9:15: Cook dinner
- 9:15: Eat dinner
- 9:45: Shower
- 10:00 : Plop in my bed and turn on the computer
Yeah, that type of day pretty much wipes me out. But it feels good to get a sweat in, have a nice healthy dinner, and make yummy lunches for the rest of the week! Eating healthy is all about preparation so my Mondays are key to that.
Tonight for my workout I chose the Crossfit WOD called “Helen.” It wasn’t crazy intense but a good workout to ease back into the week.
Three Rounds for Time ( I ended up finishing just over 13 minutes)
- 400 meter run (The first two I ran at 7mph and the third at 8mph)
- 21 kettle bell swings
- 12 pull ups
I’ve really been loving making different types of burgers for my Monday dinner / weekday lunches. They’re simple, especially on the grill, filling, and great as left overs for lunches.
Grilled Spinach and Feta Burgers
- 1.5 lbs grass-fed ground sirloin (this will make 5 burgers)
- 1 cage free large egg
- A handful of fresh organic spinach (chopped up)
- Feta Cheese
- Sea Salt
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. I didn’t really measure the ingredients, just eyed it. Form the beef into 5 different patties. Place over medium heat on the grill for 5-7 minutes on one side. Flip the burgers and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
I paired my burger with some quinoa and roasted veggies. What a delicious meal!
